"All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr
Overly sentimental, is Rory's opinion. Though she can still acknowledge its merit as a masterful example of historical fiction.
"The First Bad Man" by Miranda July
You just know Rory's copy of "No One Belongs Here More Than You" is dog-eared and scribbed in AF. So when July announced the publication of her debut novel in 2015, of course she was first in line to buy it.
"MaddAddam" by Margaret Atwood
Because obviously. Rory must've freaked when she found out the series was being adapted into an HBO show. (On a semi-related note, TV culture has changed SO MUCH since 2007. I feel certain there'll be some Netflix binge-watching references from Lorelai and Rory in the revival, and it'll be kinda jarring to hear.)
"Boy, Snow, Bird" by Helen Oyeyemi
Oyeyemi is a modern-day Emily Dickinson in Rory's book. She also loves the gothic tropes of the author's 2009 work, "White Is for Witching."
"Fifty Shades of Grey" by E. L. James
Actually, she might have read for this. Purely for cultural anthropological research reasons, you understand. And by that I mean, researching inside her underwear, amirite? *high fives no one in particular*
